  • 1 1/2 pounds Ground beef 80-20 blend
  • 1 Yellow Onion diced
  • 1 Bell pepper diced
  • 1 Zucchini diced
  • 12 ounces Rotel tomatoes with chiles original
  • 3 tablespoons Taco seasoning
  • 3 cups Spinach uncooked
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 stalks Green onion diced
  • 1/2 Avocado diced
  • Cilantro chopped


  • Lightly brown and crumble the beef over medium heat using a large skillet - about 5 minutes. Drain the excess fat.
  • Add onion, pepper, and zucchini and cook until softened - about 5 minutes. Drain the excess liquid.
  • The tomatoes and taco seasoning should be added next for 3 minutes.
  • Wilt the spinach in the skillet and mix throughly for 2 minutes.
  • Cover with the shredded cheese and cook for 5 minutes until it is melted. You can cover the skillet to melt the cheese faster.
  • Serve in a colorful bowl and garnish with avocado chunks, green onion, and cilantro.


You can also add some heat to the finished bowl by drizzling Sriracha or Cholula on top. Can also top with Mexican cream.
